1. To prepare chicken, combine first 4 ingredients in a large 
bowl; toss and let stand 3 minutes. Remove chicken from 
marinade; discard marinade. Sprinkle chicken evenly with 1/4
 teaspoon salt. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat
 pan with cooking spray. Add chicken to pan; cook 6 minutes 
on each side or until done.
